About a year ago I really wanted to try those body wrap things everyone was talking about.  After meeting with the lady that sold me one I started learning about It Works! and the  products they had to offer.  I am quite a skeptic when it comes to a lot of products that claim so many health benefits, but when I heard that this one specific “drink” provides 8 plus servings of fruits and vegetables and helps detoxify, I wanted to try it.  Needless to say, our whole family loves It Works! Greens.


The main reason why I wanted to blog about Greens is to share our personal story of going from prescription medication for our daughter to none at all.  I know no one likes to talk about constipation, but sadly enough , several years ago our daughter suffered from horrible constipation and she was even sent to see a GI doctor.  They prescribed medicine to go to the bathroom and she needed it at least every other day.  She was a picky eater (not so much anymore!) and she rarely ate her veggies.  So, looking for alternatives I decided to have her try the Greens with some orange juice and she liked it!  We noticed how well she was going to the bathroom and stopped the medication.  I can say now that she has been medication free for a year!  She loves her Greens and even asks for them!

I for one cannot go without my Greens!  That is the first thing I drink in the morning.  They energize me and I feel great!  Our entire little family enjoys Greens very much.

So, this is what Greens are all about!

  • Comes in Orange and Berry flavor
  • It’s an alkalizing drink powder
  • Detoxifies
  • Promotes pH balance within the body
  • 8 plus servings of fruits and vegetables in every scoop

And here is a little recipe that works great for whitening teeth!!  I know, I’ve had the question before:  Greens to whiten?  Yes!!!!  Adding Greens to your whitening regime makes it quicker and better!

You need:

  1. 1 tsp Greens
  2. 1 tsp Baking Soda
  3. 1 tsp Hydrogen Peroxide
  4. Squirt of toothpaste

Mix all ingredients together (preferably in a container you can seal).  Brush teeth as usual with regular toothpaste and then brush teeth with the Greens mixture.  You will look funny for a minute or two, but it is worth it!
